The Audi R8 V10 is one of the supercars on our review wish list. But before we can have a go with the new Audi wundercar, the German carmaker revealed their US 2010 model-year prices. Base price of the all-new Audi R8 V10 model has been put at $146,000. Shipments will start across the country this week.
